I was in the U.S. For Chritmas and this kid's disappearance was all over the news. Now he and his mommy have turned up in PV or thereabouts.

Maybe that fresh black hair dye job gave him away...ha!

I would understand if his processing was slowed up because of the holidays. I'm sure there's some space in the Chapala lockup.

Maybe he learned that blonds don't have more fun. Twisted Evil

After reading about the case, I'd opine that the parents should be jailed for really bad child raising, too.

Dang, PV would have not been at the top of my list of Mexica hideouts if I was a top news story in the U.S. It would have been on the bottom just above Chapala.

It's ironic that his lawyers used parenting fail as a defense, wasn't it. Probably only works for rich white kids, huh?

Here's a good link to his story.

I agree that PV was a dumb place to hide. They may have their own local group of bounty hunters.
I believe they were from Texass to begin with. They seem to breed more than their share of asholes there. Twisted Evil

They got caught by using their cell phone to call for a pizza delivery. The U.S. marshals picked up on it and notified Mexican authorities.

Read that Texas is filing to change his status from juvenile to adult court. That would be a whole new ballgame for the little darling.

And the judge for allowing the defense of affuenza.

If they had said his parents let him do anything he wanted cause they were rich and he didn't know any better.
I doubt that would have been a defense.

He filed an amparo and will be here for a few days pending the outcome. The ABC affiliate in Dallas interviewed me and will run my clips on the news later today.

Spencer, what is an amparo? Is he in jail in Guadalajara?

He is here at the immigration facility in Guadalajara which is where people are held until they are deported. An amparo is a term for a type of constitutional suit or writ. It can also mean an appeal (amparo directo) to fight a final resolution. This type of amparo is equivalent to a habeus corpus or extraordinary writ of mandate or prohibition.

Does that mean he may get a freedom ticket and not have to go back to the states? Also where can we view your interview with ABC. On the ABC national news this evening?

There are automatic stays for certain types of issues such as deportation, exhumation and prison but in this case there are laws in place to be able to deny a fugitive from staying in Mexico.

Just my layman's observation but it seems to me that the amparo legal maneuver is one of the most abused in Mexico.
Lots of people guilty of crimes avoid prosecution using it.

Im not his attorney. I was just asked to comment on Mexican law and the legal system. I have not seen the court filings so my comments are in general.

Oh. Bummer.

Why would he want to stay in jail in Guadalajara? Why is he fighting extradition?

Maybe mommie offered to buy the judge‘s house for a few million dollars, if only they could arrange to stay in Mexico to enjoy their new home as permanent residents. We often hear that, “Anything is possible in Mexico.“

Oh, I see he isn't in Jail actually, but an immigration detention center...maybe that is a lot more pleasant. And money can probably make things even more comfy.

They were staying in a dump in PV.
